Face the upcoming winter days with a touch of elegance and warmth. Melange(tm)s beautiful wing-like shape drapes naturally around the neck with no bulkiness, only the perfect amount of fabric to fend off the cold.
The shawl is worked top down, from the centre out. Increases and short rows form the dramatic wings.
Using just two skeins of Zitron Filisilk, you(tm)ll have enough yarn left over to knit the Mocca cowl, Melange(tm)s whimsical counterpart.
19 stitches and 27.5 ridges (55 rows) = 10 cm (4 in) with US#6/4 mm needle, in garter st (= knit all rows)

My name is Jana Huck. I live in Luebeck, Germany. I started knitting when I searched for something that I still could do while being sick and it has become a passion. I almost started designing right from the beginning as I had no patience for following directions. I always need a challenge when I knit. I love to have an idea and to think: Yes, this would be nice but it is impossible to do. Then I find a way to do it. Whenever I see hand-knitted items, I try to figure out in my head how they were knit. Of course, there are many, many knitwear designers that I admire and to relax, I now love to work from their patterns.
I feel that it is very fulfilling to write down my ideas and share them with other knitters. Hooray for the internet which is making this so easy!
I have been knitting for a few years now. I am still in awe by the many possibilities. I definitely do not knit fast enough. ;)
